Santos Saves Chelsea from Potential Quagmire …

Last night, Santos issued a statement ruling out the sale of Neymar on their website. In the statement, Santos’ president Luiz Álvaro made it very clear that the club was not ready to listen to any offers for Neymar. In the same statement, Neymar’s agent declared that it was not in his client’s best interest to leave Santos now. In short, Santos told all bidding clubs to not bother.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
Neymar is a young talented striker with an impressive goal record. We tried signing him when he turned 18 but we failed in our bid. After our failed bid, Neymar got a new contract with a higher release clause.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
Given that we did not want to meet his release clause of €35m, I found it surprising Álvaro told the press last week that we were one of the clubs to meet his new release clause of €45m. I guess winning the Copa Libertadores changes the value of a player.                                                                                                                                                                                
To be frank, I do not want to see Neymar at Stamford Bridge anytime soon. The kid has a bad attitude. In September 2010, he threw up a tantrum and yelled at his manager for not making him take a penalty kick. The manager punished him by making him sit out two matches.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Santos sacked the manager for making Neymar unhappy. Neymar dives often to earn free kicks and penalties. After waiting for 48 years, Santos won their third Copa Libertadores title. Neymar celebrates this fantastic achievement by joining a fight that broke out at the end of the match.                                                                                                                     
Neymar Kicks Penarol Player                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Neymar is a fantastic player but it until he matures; I do not want him near our club. Given Santos sacked a manager because he punished Neymar, I do not believe it will be anytime soon. Santos has saved us from a potential quagmire.

  1. Well I’m a fan of Neymar, but I think it’s time to forget him. If he shows no interest in Europe, then Europe must show no interest in him. If Neymar wants to play for a big team outside Brazil he needs to think how he can assist that team in getting him. Surely it’s the team you’re going to that you need to think about most. Neymar must realize that if he really wants to move, there is little Santos can do about it. If he makes his choice public; it’s game over. Ultimately the decision is his, not theirs.

  2. the release clause in his contract is 45m,this effectively meany santos can not decide if the deal will happen or not.i love the way their president thinks they can decide what happens likewise with his agent….always trying to raise the price and his wages.

  3. Totally agree with you. Neymar is one player we can do without.
    I live in Brazil and can guarantee you that back in Blighty you only hear half the stuff that's reported over here regarding “Neymar the Brat”.
    The only contribution he would make to the team is as a destabilising force, as was Robinho at Man City.
    Stear well clear Abramovich.

  4. Despite what Santos claim, it may be that there were no serious offers for Neymar. It’s seems odd that he wanted to go to Real Madrid and now suddenly he wants to stay at Santos. I think they invited the big clubs to talk to Neymar in the hope of landing 45m, but withdrew it when no one offered that. And I don’t think Chelsea put in any offers, though Madrid may have made some enquiries.
